Medical Malpractice In Failure To Diagnose

Compensation For Misdiagnosis Or Delayed Treatment Of Serious Conditions

Failure to diagnose is one of the most common forms of medical malpractice, with devastating consequences. A dire condition becomes a fatality. A delayed diagnosis of cancer deprives the patient of a possible cure. A wrong diagnosis leads to unnecessary surgery or radiation therapy.

If doctors and hospital staff missed an opportunity to diagnose a serious medical condition, the law firm of Friedman Sanchez, LLP, will aggressively pursue compensation for the resulting disabilities or wrongful death. We have handled medical malpractice cases for more than 20 years in New York City, Long Island and statewide.

Holding Medical Professionals Accountable For Diagnosis Errors

There may be multiple people in the chain who share responsibility, from general practitioners, ER doctors, radiologists, lab technicians and nurses who missed the signs to hospital administrators who ordered the discharge of a distressed and undiagnosed patient.

Our attorneys are skilled at reading between the lines in the medical records to identify the liable parties and the negligence:

  • Failure to diagnose heart attack, internal bleeding, blood clots, sepsis and other life-threatening conditions
  • Failure to diagnose bone fractures or ligament damage
  • Failure to diagnose cancer or other grave illness
  • Parking a patient in a waiting room or hallway who needed urgent intervention

We have a long record of medical malpractice verdicts and settlements, including a $1.1 million wrongful death recovery for failure to diagnose an arterial occlusion that led to a fatal cardiac arrhythmia.
